The German surname Eckstein originated in the region of Hessen, where it is believed to have first emerged. The name is made up of two German words, "Eck," meaning "corner," and "Stein," meaning "stone"; thus, the name literally means "corner-stone." The name was most likely originally borne by someone living near a boundary stone, or, alternatively, to someone working as a stonecutter or mason.

Eckstein Early Origins



The surname Eckstein was first found in Hessen, where Heinrich Eckstein, living in Trechtingshausen in 1235, is the earliest recorded bearer of the name. The young Eckstein family played an important role during the early Middle Ages as the history of Hessen unfolded.
